Google Apps service account for connection



We currently have an enterprise connection for a Google Apps domain which is authorized by an administrator on our domain (setup like this). This works as expected, however extended attributes (e.g. retrieving a users Groups) are tied to the account of the administrator who initially authorized the connection, if they lose admin rights at some point in the future then we have to re-authenticate the connection with another admin user. Is there some way to use a Google API service account for this instead?


Hi @kieran.doonan that is actually a quite interesting scenario, however we do not have anything documented related to that, that I am aware of. Honestly, I would try to check and implement such thing.

The only solution that I can think of is to transfer the rights to a newer dashboard admin, and re-authenticate the connection with him.
